payments. in 2006, when speaking in opposition to increasing the debt limit, the senator obama said the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. those comments hold true today. that is why it is disappointing that the president is declining to engage in a meaningful dialogue to identify a responsible, balanced approach to reduce spending. and, reducing the deficit, which the president promised to cut in half during his first term. of course, it is tough to cut the deficit when the senate, controlled by the president's own party, will not or cannot even produce a budget. it has been four years since the democrat-controlled senate has passed a budget. that is a disgrace. i fully expect republicans and democrats will disagree about what the budget should look like, even when one party has a majority in both the senate and house, the two parties often disagree. the failure to resolve the differences is the problem. how can we even start to find common ground if senate democrats will not tell us where they stand? in the first pla
's a democratic senate. 20 democrats are up for re-election in 2014. they're not as left wing as he is. they certainly didn't get elected in states as democrat and blue as obama did. so he's asking those guys to go out in front on his tax policies, his spending policies. remember, he just signed to make permanent 85% of the bush tax cuts in dollar terms, 99% of the bush tax cuts in terms of who was affected. these are tax cuts the democratic party has run against for 12 years as a bad idea from start to finish. so the republicans made a hundred steps forward and took back either one or 15 steps and then obama locked it in. why? largely because democrats in the senate did not want to be attached to the size of tax increases that the president wanted. so he has a democrat senate that's not as left wing as he is. reid may be, but reid has to take care of his own. and a republican house elected every bit as much as he was. >> let me bring jake back. you got an update from the white house about this. >> well, just what his next hundred days will look like. obviously he's talked about trying

caucus, meaning it will pass. democrats would prefer a longer term solution. senate majority leader harry reid has expressed support for the house bill. the white house says president obama won't stand in the way of it becoming law. ross? >> yeah. >>> we've been asking as a result here in davos how well u.s. lawmakers' persistent failure to come up with a permanent solution impact the u.s. economy. this is some of these views. >> the lack of decisions in the u.s., kicking the can down the road will be a drag. i think it will be a slower start in the united states as a result generally. >> actually very concerned because the issue is demography, medicare. it's not -- everybody focuses on the cost of running the state. about 15% to 20%. but in the short term, i think actually there will be answers. >> longer term, i think u.s. will be supported by the shale gas and the shale oil industry that is growing very fast at the moment. the energy bill will did g down a lot and they'll be much more competitive. i think the debt problems will resolve themselves. >> all right. that's the views of some

and then the senate. i would hope senator reed would go through the ordinary process of having the senate pass a bill and let's put it on the floor and pass amendments. i would like to have offsetting spending cuts. we did this last time. president obama agreed to dollar for dollar spending cuts for every dollar the debt cell was raised. it's 22 times we have used the debt ceiling to reinact really substantial reforms. we need those reforms more than ever. the,000 is taking the first step. i hope the senate will do its work and i will push to off-set some of this. >> you don't have a problem with using the debt ceiling as a means to negotiate this. >> i don't. this president won't agree voluntarily to cut a dime of spending and thinks we need more spending, not less. the only time we were able to get him to agree with spending reductions was the last time we were arguing over the debt limit. it's not optimal, not my first choice. i think we have to use whatever tools are available to us. we are on an unsustainable path. the overspending is costing us economic growth and costing us jobs. >> do republi
